for businesses to discriminate against lbgt people. it was pushed by people who fear that the freedom of religion is under attack. but she pushed back saying there were no instances in arizona of religious freedom taking a backseat to lbgt right. >> senate bill 1062 does not address a specific concern related to religious liberty in arizona. i have not heard of one example in arizona where business owners' religious liberty has been violated. >> the thing is, arizona is not an outlier here anymore. at least 12 other states are looking at similar bills. oregon could even see something on its ballot this year. several of these efforts have run into roadblocks, sure, or even political abandonment following the outcry in arizona. but it is, we think, all part of a larger strategy on the right, invoking religion as a trump card in venues where there was actually a consensus that other, shall we say, nonreligious values rule. i'm thinking about like profits in the corporate board room or science in the public hospital. and where arizona's effort failed spectacularly, a more careful interpretation and v
services, perhaps. someone on the basis of the fact that they are homosexual and their religion forbids homosexuality, their sincere about it. it's a sincere belief they should be able to do that. that's an order of magnitude greater than the legal right to deny services to a gay wedding where religion is clearly involved in the sacriment of marriage. >> we hear from folks on the religious right who say they feel religion is under attack. >> i look at this bill and wonder whether this is a reaction, an over reaction to people who feel under attack on this score. and in the end, you know, they may have struck back in a way that's deeply offensive to many, and potentially dangerous to folks who are gay and lesbians who need medical services and other services denied potentially. >> that's right, and i think it's a little hard to tell, with the bill not having been signed and put into effect and tested as it would be in the courts, exactly how the bill would play out. if in fact as the critics claim, it would go so far as to allow a christian doctor who was deeply conservative in his relig
're homosexual and their religion for bids homosexuality, that seems to me that is a magnitude greater than legal rights to deny services to a gay wedding where religion is purely involved in the sacrament of marriage. >> what is this about? we hear from folks on the religious right they say they feel religion is under attack i look at the bill and wonder whether this is a reaction, an overreaction, to people who feel under attack on this score, and in, in the end, you know, they may have thrust back in a way that is deeply offensive in a way to many and dangerous to folks who are -- needing medical services being denied. >> well, that is right. and i think it's a little hard to tell with the bill not having been signed and put into affect and tested, it was a would be in the courts. exactly how the bill would play out f it's fact it would go so far as to allow christian doctor deeply conservative in his views to deny treatment it's hard to imagine this, but i suppose it's possible, if that is the case it seems to be a big huge overreach. but i, look. this goes to a larger question. it's do peopl
not of religion, necessarily, but of money and money matters and talks. you know that. >> absolutely. i see this as a business story. anyway, we appreciate your story very much. free market capitalism, it's blind to things like race, religion, color, gender and sexuality. that's the economics of it. while i have enormous respect for religious freedom and beliefs, i just don't see this as the key issue in the discussion. that's why i think governor jan brewer should veto what really amounts to a gay discrimination bill and an anti-business bill as well. but many people disagree with me. here now to discuss outgoing business insider, politics editor, josh bare row and we welcome kathy, senior fellow at the family research council and spokesperson for the u.s. catholic bishops. kathy, let me begin with you. you're talking to a pro life catholic. you probably know that. >> i do. >> on this one, i think the capitalist free market principles quite frankly trumped the religious issues. tell me why you disagree. >> this is the same balancing test that ted kennedy and chuck schumer voted into federa
of the law substantially burdenening somebody's exercise of religion. arizona is one of many that has laws like that. so what was different about this arizona law is that it would have expanded the law to apply not just to individuals but to businesss that get sued by someone in a private lawsuit, someone that they refuse to serve and what got the sponsors of the bill concerned was a decision last year in neighboring new mexico when the supreme court there ruled against a be queer key photographers who refused to photograph the ceremony of two women. and this is exactly at the heart of the challenge to the obamacare law that the supreme court will hear next month. >> gwen rattled off this week's different developments. you've got fights in state houses and in courthouses. what else is going on? >> a texas judge became the latest to strike down a ban on same sex marriage saying that it's -- there's no good reason to do that. gwen: how many states have done that? >> in terms of court action, six or seven. we have 17 states in which same sex marriage is allowed. we have a trial that starred t

under state law in arizona. race, gender and religion are but being gay is not. it wasn't protected before brewer vetoed the bill and it still isn't protected after the veto. the waiting photographer refused to fake pick kpurs of the gay couple and she was sued for it. the bill she vetoed was an effort to protect against the legal challenges that could result from discrimination. even with this bill gone there is no law on arizona's books that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation. at least 12 states this year has issued legislation like arizona to extend the tide. senator mike lee of utah, conservative republican has introduced the marriage and religious freedom act. as they scramble topaz these laws, though, the courts seem to be moving in the opposite direction, even when it comes to red state america. just this week a federal judge ordered officials in the state of kentucky to start recognizing the marriage of same-sex couples that were performed outside of the state. and in texas, federal judge struck down that state's ban on same-sex marriage ruling that the cur
interpretation of their own religion. and then to claim persecution. the vast majority of germans are christian and nobody is claiming that the schooling system is a way that deprives them of the way of practice it of christianity. so i think i understand technically why as a matter of asylum would be rejected. but, let's hope somebody will exercise discretion and let them in on other grounds. >> yeah. the decision really lies with the administration. >> exactly. >> that is it for the panel. we will watch this one. stay tuned for oscar-nominated films you may have missed. uture is a pretty difficult thing to do. but, manufacturing in the united states means advanced technology. we learned that technology allows us to be craft oriented. no one's losing their job. there's no beer robot that has suddenly chased them out. the technology is actually creating new jobs. siemens designed and built the right tools and resources to get the job done. millions have raised their hand for the proven relief of the purple pill. and that relief could be in your hand. for many, nexium helps relieve heartburn sym
's, this was caesar. this might have been freedom of religion on the part o of-- religious free done-- freedom on the part of this legislation but this came right down to arizona facing the same ignomiy and loss of capital that it faced on martin luther king day when it refused to accept martin luther king day as a national holiday and again lost convention business. i think it was a pretty tactical, hardheaded decision made. and mitt romney to his credit weighing in in favor of vetoing it. >> woodruff: along with arizona two senators it is not just arizona, but there are six other states considering similar legislation. >> well, i did declare my interest, hopefully we will see this resolve. what is interesting is the rea sortion of the corporate country club establishment that is what really rallied here and really changed the bill. this is an establishment that has been loss pog we are to the tea party, in part as my colleague gail pointed out because of the campaign-finance reform that made it hard for the big donors to control the party and made it easy for the tea party, but so this was a
businesses to turn away gay customers. in the name of religion. >> arizona governor jan brewer is under intense pressure to veto, tweeting overnight that she will do the right thing for the state. more now from abc's cecilia vega. >> outrage at the state capitol. as governor jan brewer faces a decision, does she sign into law a bill in the name of religious freedom to refuse to serve gay people or veto it. but companies are pouncing, saying the law would create an unfriendly climate that's bad for business. joining the chorus, marriott hotels. tech giant, apple. which has plans to open a 2,000 job high-tech plant in the state. and american airlines. whose ceo wrote, this bill send the wrong message. mitt romney chimed in urging a veto. even the nfl weighs in. with next year's super bowl set to be played in arizona, the league says it supports tolerance and inclusiveness. >> it is discrimination couched behind the belief that i can hide behind my religious beliefs. >> the opposition has been loud, but you from the backers of this bill so far we are hearing silence. we tried to find busin
of the doubt. >> certainly i think religion is something always hot in the hearts of people. so there's outrage here. thousands asking in this petition -- >> 60,000. >> probably counting. there are those asking where is the outrage about christians being persecuted? where are those people? the incidents we've been seeing are outrageous. june 2009 -- >> in nigeria 59 were massacred on monday in their sleep by muslims against christians. they weren't watching a movie video at the time. >> these are the numbers here. harassment of christians in the countries that are reporting incidence of them. these are the ones we know about, in 2012, 110 of them. it certainly is something that brings outrage to many. the most oppressive nations now according to research, north korea, somalia, syria, iraq and afghanistan. is it a risky move of katy perry to go there with this video? should we be more vocal about the oppression for christians as well? >> i have a different take. who cares about a music video when people in those countries are being massacred, killed, churches burned and houses destroyed? as oppo
or religion" or have -- quote -- "antipathy toward people who aren't like them." when i served in the house of representatives in 2009 speaker nancy pelosi said in a town hall meeting in august of this year that those with concerns about obamacare, those with concerns about obamacare were -- quote -- "un-american." no one has the right to determine whose believes are american or un-american. certainly no one in the united states house of representatives or the united states senate. it's troubling that there is a reflexive reaction in congress to label critics as unloyal. recognizing disagreement is part of the decision-making process of our democracy and arpful die long between all americans is critical to a well-functioning republic. certainly anything short of that is not worthy, is not worthy of the senate floor. i'm weary of the repeated attempted to distract the american people from the rollout and poor performance of obamacare. this week "the new york times" poll -- new york/cbs poll found that only 6% of americans believe that obamacare is working well and should be kept in place as
directly in the face of our religion. one of our core values as christians, we believe, is to love your neighbor as yourself. this bill is seeking to under a guise of religious freedom, it is seeking to give people license to discriminate. that doesn't love your neighbor as yourself. >> in the meantime, more national companies are urging a veto with a deadline a few days away. at&t, delta airlines, intel, text smart and yelp joined the earliest opponents of this bill. >>> a scathing senate report accuses credit suisse of helping wealthy americans of hiding billions from the irs. it was money hidden in panty hose, secret meetings in hotel l lobbies with no paper trail. christine romans is here with answers >>> the top brass at the bank of credit suisse, they acknowledge the behavior and say they have cleaned it up. senators are furious that this went on for so long. the government, the u.s. government, didn't do more to stop it. no question. today, right now, we're getting a very good look at the lifestyles of the rich and greedy. the numbers are shocking. according to the senate investi
is going to cause discrimination based upon religion in arizona. i scoffed at that until tonight. when a muslim waiter serving up here walked up to sheriff joe, wouldn't give him his dinner because he says i don't serve slime. >> reporter: he was a supporter of the immigration law in 2010. he declined to speak with cnn said the statements i maid were satirical comedy. did this roast go too far? >> it was a roast. john kavanaugh is my friend. he's not a racist. there's a double standard around here. everybody is talking about him. what about the activists and these civil rights that call mena decide and hitler. why isn't there an uproar about calling me every name in the book. why are they worried about some roast? >> yes. all right. coming up next on "new day" -- it does matter when you tell jokes. coming up next on "new day" sure it's an honor being nominated but there are no losers on oscar night. wait until you see what the stars will be going home with in those gift bags. i got to go back to hollywood. >> i'm sure they will report them on their taxes. ♪ honestly? i wanted a smart
the world. >> father jonathan morris saw this movie. our fox news religion contributor. father, good to see you. what'd you think of it? >> well done! i live tweeted my experience of the film. i thought it was well done. it proves when you have the formula of great talent, and mark burnett and row ma downey are great talent, and production qualities, and secondly you have money put into it, and they did do that, and thirdly, you have faith-filled producers doing a film, it works. and ten years ago to the weekend, "the passion of the christ" came out. this came out -- this movie came out on friday, beat expectations. the industry had suggested maybe $7.2 million. it's now grossed $9.4 million on a friday. it's going to have a good weekend. it beat "the lego movie." and so -- >> hollywood has learned that the bible kind of sells. >> it does, as long as it's done, as i mentioned, that form la with the faith-filled producers and super good talent. you can't just put jesus on the screen and have him make money for you. >> it must be difficult to play jesus. >> no pressure, you know, of the chara
relationship with ukraine, good diplomatic and economic religions. >> john kerry, i assume he was, if he's in washington, he was at the white house for this so-called meeting. we saw general martin dempsey, chuck hagel, james clapper, where's kerry? >> he is, we don't know where he is right now, but clearly, he has a very close relationship with sergey la the russian foreign minister. you've seen some talk about the russians possibly calling their ambassador back to moscow, but that's not really where the business between the u.s. and russia is done. it's done between capitals, the white house, between the kremlin and secretary kerry and lavrov. secretary kerry has had some positive effects with his relationship with lavrov. they put together those peace talks in geneva. we have on the syrian crisis, we haven't seen a lot of progress, but they are determined to work together and this is i think you should look for kerry to get much more involved. >> we know the vice president, joe biden, has been deeply involved in this crisis as well. stand by. i want to go to moscow right now. fred is
